iPhone app from Booking.com lets you book accommodations for tonight or tomorrow based on your basic lodging preferences

Booking.com, world leader in booking accommodations online, wants to make it even easier for business and leisure travelers to find their ideal accommodation at the drop of a pin. The company's newest app, Booking Now, allows users to book a room day of or one day prior to a trip, making it an ideal companion for the last-minute traveler.

To start using the app, you’ll be prompted to personalize your account with basic details (email, name and phone number, which one can assume is for future hotel reservations). Next, select a price range from budget through to premium, the typical number of guests in your party, and must-have amenities. If you require breakfast, parking, non-smoking accommodations or Wi-Fi, Booking Now will filter through their database to match you with the best available lodging.
